Wild River

Elia Kazan may forever be identified with the fury and anguish of Brando and Dean in On the Waterfront and East of Eden. The emotions that animate Kazan's too little known Wild River are more subtle, but the performances are equally transfixing. Montgomery Clift is an official dispatched to Depression-era Tennessee to persuade an elderly matriarch to take the government pay-out and leave her island plantation before it is flooded by Roosevelt's mammoth TVA scheme.
